Brief Assassin’s Creed 3 gameplay on Wii U Vs PS3

By Alan Ng - Jun 12, 2012

Assassin’s Creed 3 is surely going to be one of the highlights of the reminder of 2012 when it launches in a few months, but with the addition of a Nintendo Wii U version as well, there’s the little matter of contemplating which version will end up being graphically superior.

An early video released online attempts you give you a basic idea on how the Wii U version will shape up along side console versions, or in this specific case – the PS3 version. We say basic idea here with emphasis as this can’t really be deemed as a proper comparison since the PS3 version is using direct feed video, while the Nintendo Wii U gameplay is off-screen only.

Having said that, the video still provides us with a general idea on how the Wii U version is shaping up. From our point of view, the Wii U version is looking at the very least on par with the PS3 version and maybe even better due to some brighter lighting effects – we can’t really tell for sure.

If you were previously fearing that the Wii U wouldn’t be able to compete with the latest PS3 and Xbox 360 games, then this video alone gives you an idea on that theory being complete rubbish. The Wii U version looks great and considering that this is off-screen footage, don’t be surprised if the Wii U version ends up looking much more polished than current-gen consoles once proper HD comparison footage is out.

After the apparent confirmation of Black Ops 2 on the Wii U as well, things are suddenly starting to look up for Nintendo. We would say that after E3 2011, the Wii U is looking like a much stronger force this time around. Check out the video for yourself and let us know your thoughts on it. Once again, don’t treat this as a proper graphics comparison, but an initial look at how graphics are shaping up between the two consoles.

Are you going to take the Wii U more seriously now?

    I agree that right now it is most likely better then ps3 or up to ps3 standards , mainly because its using current tech.. however what I would say is how long can wii u contend for? supposedly next year ps4/xbox 720 info or console releases, that will leave nintendo behind again. Nintendo is still a great company but i dont think it appeals to hardcore gamers as much. more to new gamers or people who look for casual gaming etc. i maybe wrong but you never know..

      The thing is, yes like you said the Wii U is using current tech (2008), but the PS3 and Xbox 360 (2004) they are using old tech. If your wondering why games aren’t looking a lot better on the current tech (Wii U) that’s because there are two consoles using old tech that have both sold over 50 million units (and only one current tech console that has sold 0 units), games are being made with old tech in mind, and in order for games to look a lot better on new tech, they have to be made with current or new tech in mind. So when the  PS4/Xbox 720 come out with new tech (2010), games will be made with current/new tech in mind, therefor the games will look a lot better on the Wii U (not quite PS4/Xbox 720, but still a lot better then PS3 and Xbox 360).

    It may look brighter on the wii u console but doesn’t look as realistic in that part in the alley way your meant to be hidden away in the shadows and the PS3 version makes it look that way but the wii u screen doesn’t its unrealistic it looks like the brightness setting on the wii u is up to much and I believe the PS3 version of the ac series has always been better no matter what anyone says the controller layout is simpler   
    and more comfortable P.S. the wii u controller is annoying,easy to break and I went to e3 and tried a few games on it including Ninja gaiden 3 and Batman Arkam City after a couple of minutes playing the games my hands were sore I played and beat both games on the the other consoles and had no problem but the wii u makes it very difficult with the small buttons. I’m not sold on the wii u I think its a gimmick for kids because they have small attention spans to even care and unless anything changes for the console Nintendo has lost a costumer and more than likely a few more costumers good job Nintendo you have made another wii with updated graphics and different games you will still just have small kids by the thing and that will be your only fan base just like with the first Nintendo wii I just hope that you will come to your senses and listen to the people your mature fans and learn from your mistakes and finally after over 20 long  
    years you will finally bring out a decent console and I will pray for that day good day to the people.
